Base-10 Block Activity to Reinforce Place-Value and Number Sense Skills
These cards are perfect for second graders at the end of a unit on counting in the 1,000s to challenge them a bit! These cards are also great review for students in third grade learning how to count through the 10,000s! These cards are even great for fourth graders who are beginning to count even higher than 10,000 but must review counting in the 10,000s first!
In the classic "I have...Who has?" style, these cards create a continuous game in the classroom where the students all participate to complete the circle and get back to the beginning of their paired cards. Students review how to use base-10 blocks and count through the ones, hundreds, thousands, and ten-thousands places.
I love using these cards at morning meeting as a way to warm the students' brains up for the day and connect our morning to math.
These cards can be used several times within a corresponding unit, as students are likely to get different cards with each play. This game can also be revisited throughout the school year as a spiral review on base-10 blocks and place value.
You're kids are bound to love this game!
Thank you for your support!
